    I am getting a free xbox 360 core system with a mobile phone upgrade. I want to connect it to my 5.1 amp for surround sound. Does the core system come with an optical output. If not what other option is there? I will be using it with a Sony 32" CRT TV. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    WOW.

    Thats gotta be one awesome mobile phone company.

    No, to answer your question, you will need to purchase either the Component HD AV cable, or the S-Video cable. Alternatively, you can use the VGA cable, but I dont believe that will help you in this situation. Go for the best option for your TV, which would be Component outputs if your TV has them. Component/VGA > S-Video > Composite > RF

    Hope this helps. :)
